Book Summary of The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp


The Bible speaks often about God’s love for broken people; its pages teem with examples of this love. In The Broken Way — sequel to One Thousand Gifts — weary, worn, and damaged believers see how the gospel of Jesus expressed in the cross provides light in their darkness and healing to their brokenness. 

Written for those hoping for love and who have endured suffering, honest questions stimulate the mind and search the heart. What can we do when our heart is broken? Give up? Lash Out? Detach from community? We can, but we shouldn’t. Brokenness is actually the way, the path to find genuine intimacy and fellowship with Jesus. The grace of God saves, but it does even more; it fills brokenness with hope, and turns broken people into fruitful servants of God. 

Pain and brokenness touch all people, including those who follow Christ. The paradox is that pain, suffering, sorrow, and brokenness are not to be avoided or seen as obstacles to our intimacy with and obedience to God. Instead, the brokenness of our lives makes God’s children vulnerable to the grace of God, showing how facing brokenness through identifying with the cross — being cruciform — opens the way, a broken way, to generosity, service, growth, and healing.
